What is a starter graphics card for a dual monitor setup

Hi,

I'm looking at having a dual monitor setup and I'm not quite sure what graphics card and motherboard i need. I was thinking a graphics card with about 3gb memory and a motherboard that allows future upgrades/expansions.

    any card with 1 gig or more of ram will run 2 screens.
    whats the rest of your specs including psu size.

    psu- seasonic 660w platinum
    Motherboard- gigabyte z77n-wifi
    cpu- i5 3570k
    cpu cooler- intel RTS2011LC
    Memory- Kingston 8gb hyperx lovo
    Graphics card- looking for one so i can game and edit (BF3, Crisis, watch dogs, etc.)
    Main storage- WD1002FAEX
  3. for that system a gtx 770 or r9 280x up to a gtx 780ti or r9 290x would do it justice.
    if you dont want to spend that much then a 650ti or hd 7770 would be the bare minimum i would recommend to get playable frame rates in them games.
    you may be better off going with a cuda based card for rendering as a lot more apps support nvidia by default than amd for gpu rendering. if your happy just to use the cpu for it then any manufacturer will do.
